New Acne Routine

Oh how I have missed posting on here and I am so glad I am finally getting round to getting back to my little blogging world.  My laptop broke, work got crazy, life got crazier, but now I am back and ready to start sharing some exciting things with you.

Women strain at back cosmetic mirror with problem acne face. Skin care concept

I have been itching to fill you in on my new acne routine.  Hands down,  I would say this is probably the most life changing part of my beauty routine.  I recently went back to the doctor as I was getting fed up with breakouts that weren’t clearing and each breakout causing me more scaring.  I just wasn’t winning.  I was a little hesitant as the medications I have used in the past have stopped working as well as some that have caused a lot of irritation to my already sensitive skin.

My Top 5 Bronzers & Highlighters – Part 2

Fotor050720532

In my opinion, I feel like every girl should wear highlighter.  Do you know why? Because it is such a simple addition to your makeup routine and you don’t even really need to master a technique to achieve that natural glow.  Sweeping on a little highlighter on your cheekbones, forehead, nose, cupids bow and anywhere you want a little glow, works wonders.  For me, it instantly makes me look wide away, fresh, dewy and flawless.  I am so excited to share part 2 here with you.

Highlighters
1. Kevin Aucoin – Celestial Powder – Candlelight
I haven’t been using this highlighter for long, perhaps about a year now, but it has superseded any highlighters I have ever used and is now my number one.  Reason being, it’s perfect to use during the day as well as in the evening.  The colour payoff this highlighter gives, is something I have never seen before.  Such a beautiful sheen of champagne is transferred to your skin, without it looking to sparkly, over the top and just makes you look naturally dewy, which is the look Ipersonally love.  I dust this wherever I can, as it will never look too cakey or shimmery.  Cheekbones, bridge of my nose, forehead and cupids bow.  It will give you the most perfect glow.  It is on the pricey side, but it lasts. Purchase Here

2. Mac – Soft & Gentle – Minerelize Skin Finish
Soft & Gentle was the first highlighter I ever purchased years ago, and you wouldn’t believe, how long it has lasted! I love using this on nights out, as it does stand out but again, doesn’t look overly glittery.  It’s probably one of the most popular highlighters and I even use this as an eyeshadow, especially on the inner corners of my eyes, which instantly brightens and opens up my eyes.  A staple in my collection and will always be up there as one of my favourites Purchase Here

3.  Benefit FInishing Touch Facial Glow
I have had this liquid highlighter in my makeup kit for nearly 10 years and is a classic.  In it’s liquid form, it’s so natural, dewy and there is no way you can over do it with this hightlighter.  It has a soft rose sheen, which can be applied underneath foundation, mixed with your moisturiser or foundation or even worn alone.  I like to pat it gently onto my cheek bones and swipe the remainder off my finger down the bridge of my nose which immediately gives me that wide awake look.  Unfortunately, this product is discontinued, I don’t know why but you can purchase a similar version, by Benefit called High Beam. Purchase Here

4. The Balm – Betty Lou Manizer
Now this little beauty is the newest addition to my collection and boy is it addictive.  If I could wear this highlighter when just lounging around the house, I would.  It makes me feel so pretty, girly and instantly illuminates my complexion.  Again, not too shimmery, just the right amount of highlight to compliment and finish off the rest of your makeup.   Great to add to the inner corners of your eyes to open them up subtly and works like a dream with the Bronzing Bandit Bronzer, mentioned above.  Purchase Here

5.Mac – Stobe Liquid Lotion
I cannot live without using this on my clients.  I like to use this on top of moisturiser and before foundation.  The dewiness that shows through is so subtle and allows your skin to look naturally flawless.  I then like to dab this onto the high points of the cheekbones and looks even better in photography.  This can also be worn over moisturiser for a natural dewy day time look and gives you and instant boost to dull and tired skin.  One word, stunning.Purchase Here

What are you favourite highlighters and bronzers? Can you live without them, unlike me? I’ll see you soon. X.O.
